Pop Art Pup Art of Nancy Daleo

As an art student in college, I was asked to write a manifesto of art, and in essence, describe what art is (easier said than done, if possible at all). In it, I emphasized that, while art has some communicative qualities, "good" art is art that is defined largely by what it can and does do. Animal artist Nancy Daleo is a fine example of this. Daleo primarily focuses on pop art dog paintings, but she sells them to promote rescue efforts for our favorite four legged friends. Some of her proceeds of her dog art often go towards one of the many animal rescue and animal art blogs she's either involved in or heads up herself. Check out some of her dog art in a pop art style.

Daleo has a significant anthology of animal rescue, animal and art blogs referenced on her personal blog. One very entertaining blog is a dalmatian guided tour of the best "spots" in Los Angeles. Here is a picture of her dalmatian with Daleo's art;

As fun as that blog is, Daleo's work with animal rescue groups is what I appreciated. Her work can be found, (as well as a lot of other great animal art) on Art of Hearts and Tails, Art of Rescue, Art with a Bark and several more. Some of her depictions of rescue pets just tug at your heart strings;

Be sure to explore Nancy Daleo's online animal art efforts, and post this to promote animal rescue. Let me know if you come across any animal rescue artists!
